Okay, I need some guidance here. I found my way to the World Championship of Fantasy Football (WCOFF) site this weekend and am seriously considering getting involved. The WCOFF 2007 will have over 70 leagues of 12 teams that will hold an in-person draft in Vegas (or Atlantic City or Orlando) and compete during weeks 1-11 for the title of World Champion and more than $200,000 in prizes [pic below from 2006 draft from WCOFF site]. If I'm reading everything correctly, anyone can sign up as long as they can come for the draft in September and plunk down approximately $1800. And I'm actually thinking about this - and if I do it, it will be with my husband as my co-manager. For those who don't know us, and even those that do, spending $1800+ is not a trivial thing since we're not exactly rolling around in a bathtub full of benjamins over here...but this is so tempting. I mean this would be priceless - such an experience. Just not sure I can justify doing this. If anyone out there has been involved in WCOFF in the past, I would love to hear your commentary - was it worth it? Are outsiders/first-timers welcomed? Any general advice? And for the rest of you, like my sister - am I insane for considering this?

There is no barrier to entry with WCOFF. I have been out to Vegas to do this 4 out of the 5 years they have held it. The level of fantasy football "geekness" is high. But if you like talking fantasy with beer-bellied men, then its for you.
Vegas in itself makes it worthwhile, and I never spend much more time with these guys than the draft.

Keep in mind that you're getting involved with fantasy sharks. It is an exhausting experience. You have to stay on top of every fantasy aspect. You will never experience an emptier free agent pool in your life. People

Know the scoring system; its a PPR league. Know the free agent pickup system ; blind bidding.

Bottom line is that you'll need some luck. Overall return on investment is questionable. In order to recover your initial layout, you'll have to place 2nd in your league at least.

But the guys who put it together are quality people, and there are lots of other ways to win cash other than your league itself.
They have highest scoring league prizes, overall point scoring prizes, and a couple of post season contest as well.

If you're thinking about it, I'd say go for it. But do it more for the experience of the event, not so much for making money on it. (Save that for local leagues where you can fleece the uneducated)

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co
